First Christmas Card for 2013!

 Well, I've decided that in order to get more Christmas cards done this year than last I need to keep them Clean and Simple.  We'll see how long that resolution lasts! This is a digi stamp by Stitchy Bear Digis called O Winter Trees that I simply printed out in green ink and then covered with Sparkle N Sprinkles' Shimmer embossing powder.  Easy Peasy for a fabulous look!  The little tag is Stampin Up and the green cardstock is the discontinued Handsome Hunter - I wish they would bring that one back!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Gingerloft - Trees
ABC Christmas Challenge - O is for O' Christmas Tree
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations - Christmas in July
Jellypark Friends - Christmas in July
Crafting for all Seasons - Christmas in July

Thanks for visiting!
